Jury fails to reach verdict in Ammar Terbeche manslaughter trial
Date published: 17 June 2021
Jurors have failed to reach a verdict after Abdelllkader Heni – charged with the manslaughter of Ammar Terbeche – appeared at Minshull Street Crown Court on Wednesday (16 June).
Ammar, 32, originally of Algeria, died after being hit by a car on Packer Street following an assault last September.
Abdelllkader Heni, 28, was charged with his manslaughter in October 2020.
However, after deliberations on Wednesday (16 June), the jury told the court that no verdict had been reached.
A retrial will therefore take place on 7 December.
Ammar, who had been a volunteer at Castlemere Community Centre, was assaulted during the early hours of Sunday 20 September 2020, following a conversation with three men, who left the scene in the direction of Rochdale Memorial Gardens.
Ammar was left lying in the road in the car park next to Rochdale Town Hall and was hit by a passing vehicle, whose driver stopped at the scene.
